Harold was born on January 30, 1940 to Calvin and Mildred (Balsiger) Park in Marysville, Ohio. He was a 1957 graduate of Marysville High School and furthered his education at Bowling Green University and graduated with a degree in Education from Lakeland College in Sheboygan in 1963. While attending school at Lakeland, he met the love of life, Gloria Nonhof; the two were united in marriage on Harold's birthday, January 30, 1965 at the Presbyterian Church in Manitowoc. Harold taught for several years in Gloria's hometown of Cedar Grove until moving to Wisconsin Dells on July 4th of 1965. He taught English, Social Studies and Latin as well as coached wrestling and Academic Decathlon which he was very proud that seven of the nine years his Academic Decathlon teams went to the state competition. Harold earned his Master's Degree from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1991 and retired from teaching in 1997. He enjoyed traveling with his family as well as reading, fishing, cooking, camping and motorcycles.
